Windows 8: 4 million copies sold in three days

This is called a boot band: Microsoft has sold four million copies of the updated Windows 8 since the launch of its new operating system on Friday, said Wednesday its chief executive Steve Ballmer.

And that’s not all: Microsoft has delivered “tens of millions of copies” to its partners and distributors citing Staples boss Mike Edwards, Steve Ballmer said that companies express a strong interest for the successor of Windows 7 whose licenses have recently surpassed 670 million copies sold.

Monday, general manager of Microsoft stated that Windows 8 sales were higher than those of Windows 7 at the same stage sales at its launch three years ago.

These good figures should enrage Intel CEO Paul Otellini, who did not show very optimistic about the launch of Windows 8. In September, he made a little analysis of the operating system vendor sidelines of a meeting with employees in Taiwan. Paul Otellini explained that Windows 8 still had a lot of flaws and it would be truly went before the loan. “Windows 8 still needs some improvements (…) The system is not completely ready for launch,” he said.

What Business Should Expect From Microsoft Surface

Microsoft has just launched its own tablet computer dubbed Surface for Windows 8 Pro, for business. Though it is marketed as a tablet, it has an innovative keypad which will transform itself into a laptop making it an enviable tool for any business. Not only does this mobile device do the business, it also looks the business, and with some highly competitive packages for business users on the horizon, this device is set to take the business world by storm.

Yesterday, every cutting edge business wanted iPads, but with Apples notoriously poor integration with most of the standard Microsoft based office packages, the Surface tablet could be the elegant solution everyone has been looking for.

How will it change the way people conduct business? No one knows for sure but three things are predicted to happen as soon as the tablet hits the market.

1. Replace your Laptop with the tablet

The Surface for Windows 8 Pro is designed to be a total computing solution for most homes and offices. This is being seen by pundits as a bid to end the dominance of the hulking, beige, desktop computers and, possibly, the ubiquitous laptops. Its outstanding features including the Touch Cover keyboard, a kickstand as well as the multiple data ports, making it a top draw in both laptop and tablet markets. Its unmistakably laptop functionality squeezed into the size of a tablet is really an innovation that could set a trend in the tablet technology in the future

If your job demands high levels of mobility between your office, home and elsewhere, Surface Pro could well be the only mobile device to rely on.

2. Better Support, More Apps

What makes it more advantageous when using a Microsoft device is that most IT staff are more fluent in its support and offerings as well as development, than iOS. It is particularly difficult for developers to create apps for iOS because it’s not a cheap investment to start with. Aside from the Apple environment, developers need to use Apple-specific tools and hardware that Apple can understand. Most companies don’t invest that much on Apple equipment for use by its employees.

Windows 8 Metro applications is a versatile tool that can be written on various platforms such as CSS, HTNL and Javascript using .NET. This feature allows the Surface to become the language of choice for many apps developers especially in the Windows 8 app market. More tools will soon be available for the users of this latest offering from Microsoft.

3. A Simple Transition

When the latest model of the device that you bought over a year ago hits the market you feel like you paid more than was necessary for fewer features. The perceived price of early adoption. Microsoft’s Surface tablet will eliminate that feeling by making it work perfectly with apps and other third party products that were previously developed for Windows 7 environment. This new generation tablet enables users to switch tools only if they are ready to do so.
